On Saturday I promised the kids that if they would help me mow the grass and get the porch cleaned up we would buy and set up a little Walmart blow up pool.
They did a fabulous job, so we went to Walmart, bought a pool and a pump, and got it all the way home and halfway filled with air AND water before we realized one of the caps was missing from the box. I called Walmart and they said no problem, just bring the receipt in and they would take a cap out of one of the other pools and replace it.
So we cleaned the car out real quick and ran to Walmart. Only to realize that we had just thrown the receipt away when we cleaned out the car. Went back home, dug through the trash can, and returned to Walmart with the receipt in hand.
Only to find out Walmart is totally out of pool supplies and will not be getting any more in this summer. They looked on their computer though and found another Walmart across town that had 3 pools still. Drove across town.
Only to find out that there was an error in their system, and that they actually have NO pool supplies either.
So we went miniature golfing instead.
